My mother-in-law called the other day to tell us that my sister-in-law was "let go" from her job. This is a major shock, as she had almost 30 years seniority at this company. Luckily she got a decent severance package. But she will now have to start looking for a new job.
There is a great company called LIGHTSHIP RESEARCH. This company is leading the way in executive recruiting and individual job searches. They are helping people find their perfect jobs, and will even provide resume critiques.
Here is a testimonial direct from their site:
"I lost my job as Vice President of Sales with a national technology firm and signed up for assistance with a career management firm that turned out to be terrible. I gave them $10K and they did nothing, not even return my calls. I called my lawyer and he got most of my money back and said that his neighbor had used a company called Lightship Research http://www.lightshipresearch.com. They charged less than a quarter of what the other company did and were accessible and they’re for me every step of the way. I even felt like the whole team were my friends and went through the same emotional ups and downs as I did through my job search. It took me 9 weeks and now I am the VP of Sales for a fast growing biometrics company. These are highly hard working and ethical people. I recommend them to everyone I talk to." -M. Olson, PA
